06/28/2020 - Vacation Bible School 2020 (Honeyville Baptist Church)

North Castle is hidden in a frozen land. The King’s valiant Knights are on a quest in search of the King’s Armor. But the armor isn’t what they think it is. Cokesbury’s VBS 2020, Knights of North Castle: Quest for the King’s Armor, invites children to be strong in the Lord and in the strength of his power by exploring how we put on the armor of God. Kids will take on the role of brave Knights and begin their quest each session by opening the King’s Book. They’ll explore Old and New Testament stories and discover different pieces of protective armor — the Belt of Truth, the Breastplate of Justice, the Shoes of Peace, the Shield of Faith, and the Helmet of Salvation — at work in the lives of familiar Bible characters, and explore how that armor works in their own lives as they follow and serve God. Help kids take up the gauntlet this summer and accept the challenge to “armor up” and be strong by remaining with God.


04/29/2020 - Dollar Dinner

The Dollar Dinner program was created to provide a hot meal for individuals and families who would otherwise go without. The meal is just $1, or free with coupons available for individuals and families using the Watertown Urban Mission or Adams Food Pantry. The price is low so it is affordable, but these dinners are intended for everyone, without regard to income. This is also an opportunity to fellowship with your neighbors.
